SCHEME COMMITTEE & EXPERTS PANELS
Certification Scheme Committee
MSSC's Certification Scheme Committee (CSC) and respective National Experts Panels (NEPs) for Production and Logistics are responsible for ensuring that the CPTAE and CLTAE programs adhere to ANSI/ISO/IEC Standard 17024. The NEPs review the national standards and assessment annually to keep them current with industry best practice. The CSC determines the policies and procedures under which the certifications are administered and awarded.
Qualifications: NEP and CSC members must have at least five years of direct industry or industrial training experience in manufacturing and/or logistics. The must have direct knowledge of the experience and qualifications for frontline workers in their respective fields. Members may be specialist in more than one certification area (e.g., safety, quality control, production processes, transportation, etc.)
Process: Standards are reviewed annually by subject matter experts from all sectors of manufacturing and logistics. The data is collected and reviewed by the panels in October. If substantive changes are made, a new series of standards will be issued and the certification assessments will be reviewed to determine if item changes are required. The assessment items are also reviewed annually by the NEPs to ensure that the certifications remain up-to-date with current industry practice.
